Have your say

A duo from Grantham Running Club took part in the Tallinn Half-marathon in Estonia.

Iain Brown and Kevin Baker started with modest expectations on the coastal route to the north of the capital but were pleasantly surprised to record 1hr 31min 23sec and 1.42.49 respectively.

l First home for Grantham RC in this week’s Newark Parkrun 5km was Warren Stark in 22.31, with Andrew MacAllister clocking 26.33.

l Three Grantham AC athletes have reduced their 5km PBs in the last two weeks.

At last Saturday’s Parkrun, George Hatton finished 12th at Lincoln. At the Newark event, Adam Madge and Janice Anderson’s fine runs were both rewarded with personal bests.

Results: Lincoln – 12 George Hatton 19.39; Newark – 8 Adam Madge 19.36, 13 Paul Davidson 20.50, 36 Janice Anderson 24.16.

At this week’s Lincoln event, it was Dean Houlton’s turn to record a PB with a very impressive 81.07 age graded percentage run.

Results: Lincoln – 6 Dean Houlton 18.03; Newark – 7 Paul Davidson 20.55, 33 Janice Anderson 24.22.
